I'm looking to get a monopod to shoot sports. I use a 300d with a 50-500 sigma lens. Has anyone got any reccomendations towards which one i should buy??
Thanks Mealers

May be you should post in the tripods and headsforum :


there are also other threads you may find useful

Myself, I use an "automatic" monopod form manfrotto, my priority is quick: you squeeze the hand, it pops down at the right height

Whatever choice you make, go and buy it in person so you can try it out for yourself and see if it's right for you...tripods and monopods are really something you shouldn't buy sight unseen.

What ever pod you decide to go with make sure it will handle the weight of you gear. I use the automatic handle one when I have my light lenses on 24-85, but when I use the 80-200 or the 600 I use a Manfrotto 682b it will handle over 12 lbs. Dale
